We have a new(ish) family member & his name is Alfie! He’s a Holland Lop and we’ve had him for a month now, although it feels like he’s been with us forever. I’d never had a pet bunny before so besides the internet research that we did, I really didn’t know what to expect from him personality-wise. Luckily we scored and he's a very cool little guy. He actually reminds me of a cat in a lot of ways. He mostly lounges around all day in his various favorite chill spots but when he’s really happy he runs around and does his happy jumps called “binkies.” It’s super cute to watch him enjoy himself so much and luckily he does this pretty often since we’re litter training him and he has free range of our kitchen living room area. We only put him in his cage at night and when we leave the house for long periods of time. Right now we use a store bought cage but we are in the process of designing a larger DIY home for him so he’ll be even more comfortable. 
But enough about all that.. on to the pictures!

We’ve had a tropical depression roll in on the islands so there’s been a lot of rain, lightening and thunderstorms and movies watched lately. I feel like the rainy season started early here this year because we’ve had rain for months now.. but it’s still hot and muggy! I think the last two days have been the coolest for us but let’s just say I haven’t worn my beloved skinny jeans in a while. Here are some snapshots of life. In short, went to see Jenny Lewis in concert again, lots of games at home, cuddles, sleepy lunch dates, rare workouts on rare sunny days, mall/theater hangs, birthday celebrations, baking, brunches, a 24hr bug and giggles.

Weekend Getaway

This past Saturday Derek and I stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki to celebrate 7 years together (7 years of dating, not marriage). It was the first time that we’ve been away overnight, just the two of us, since Rowan was born. Rowan had her first ever sleepover with a friend so she was super excited and had a lot of fun while we were gone. D had to work on Saturday so we weren’t even gone a full 24hrs but it was still so nice to get away and relax. Here’s to staycations!
